Milletech Systems to Locate Operations in Atlanta, Georgia
Milletech’s new offices will be located at 1 Baltimore Place Northwest in Atlanta. The Georgia Department of Community Affairs helped administer this move to one of the state’s Federal Qualified Opportunity Zones.
Milletech plans to recruit more than 100 Georgia college graduates for full-time positions every year in collaboration with WorkSource Atlanta - the city’s workforce development agency, and the University System of Georgia.
“Milletech’s Software Development Center will create jobs in emerging cloud technologies and software development in the City of Atlanta, instead of offshoring those opportunities to other countries. This facility is a ?rst-of-its-kind software development center, which will provide career pathways to Georgia’s local talent pool while boosting the state economy,” said Nasir Mujawar, CEO of Milletech Systems Inc.
“Milletech’s decision to move their operations to Georgia is a testament to our state’s top-notch college and university systems and training programs,” said Governor Brian P. Kemp. “I am confident that Milletech will be pleased with their decision to expand and invest in Georgia along with the skilled talent we have right here in the Peach State.”
“In Atlanta, Milletech will have access to top technology talent and become part of a welcoming business community committed to innovation and success,” said President and CEO of Invest Atlanta Dr. Eloisa Klementich. “I would like to thank Milletech for not only their investment in the city, but also for their commitment to training and diversity to help local students grow their careers. The new jobs created through this expansion in a range of fields and salary levels will help more Atlantans to prosper.”
“Milletech System’s new software development center will be a valuable addition to our growing technology and innovation ecosystem,” said Stacey Key, president and CEO of the Georgia Minority Supplier Development Center. “We applaud Milletech’s decision to collaborate with our university system and HBCUs, as it will create a more diverse talent pipeline and foster economic growth in our minority communities.”
“Milletech is a welcome addition to metro Atlanta’s growing roster of innovation companies,” said President and CEO of the Metro Atlanta Chamber Katie Kirkpatrick. “With this move, the company is poised to take advantage of our region’s abundant high-tech talent and supportive ecosystem to help them continue to build their business.”
“Now more than ever, we’re seeing U.S.-based companies reevaluate where they’d like their operations and talent to be located,” said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “We couldn’t be happier that Milletech chose to move their entire operation to Georgia, and we would like to thank all of our economic development partners who helped bring these jobs back home.”
